Corliss Grimes was an inspiring and untiring youth advocate in the District of Columbia. With no children of her own, she was a mother to many. Her work with the Institute for Academics - After School Tutorial Program touched the lives of children in deeply meaningful ways. Those of us who knew her miss her a lot, but take strength from the vision she had for a more harmonized community.
